Any reason there isn't a poll option for "I don't know"?

It's a special trap so that we have no winners selecting the only correct option.

Why would you want to display your uncertainty?

No. That's why the poll doesn't have an option saying "I don't know".

Itís quite possible the election has already been decided. PA & MI are already open for voting under democrat governors, guaranteeing a high turnout which benefits Biden. He only needs to flip 1 more small swing state

How would you know it benefits Biden? most Democrats are doing voting by mail. I would say it Benefits Republicans' because they are mostly voting in person.

As opposed to all the other areas where DDF is in lockstep with MSM...

I'd hope MSM doesn't poll mainly one (very specific) demographic :)

Higher turnout benefits Biden - he's the one that has to convince his voters he's worth the effort. Trump voters are more enthusiastic and motivated.

And has he done a good job convicting them? By telling the 56% of people who said they are better of economically under Trump then Obama shouldn't vote for him?

Make jokes, but I see this a possibility within the next decade.

Lincoln already addressed this and argued effectively that states do not possess the right to leave the union.

Quote
Secession is Unlawful
First Inaugural Address March 4, 1861

I hold that, in contemplation of universal law, and of the Constitution, the union of these States is perpetual....It follows....that no State, upon its own mere motion, can lawfully get out of the Union; that resolves and ordinances to that effect are legally void; and that acts of violence, within any State or States, against the authority of the United States, are insurrectionary or revolutionary, according to circumstances. I, therefore, consider that, in view of the Constitution and the laws, the Union is unbroken.

First Inaugural Address March 4, 1861

We find the proposition that, in legal contemplation, the Union is perpetual confirmed by the history of the Union itself. The Union is much older than the Constitution. It was formed, in fact, by the Articles of Association in 1774. It was matured and continued by the Declaration of Independence in 1776. It was further matured, and the faith of all the thirteen States expressly plighted and engaged that it should be perpetual, by the Articles of Confederation in 1778. And, finally, in 1787, one of the declared objects for ordaining and establishing the Constitution was "to form a more perfect Union."

Message to Congress in Special Session July 4, 1861

The States have their status in the Union, and they have no other legal status. If they break from this they can only do so against law and by revolution.
